Program #MORD001. Recorded in Portland, OR on October 01, 1988.

Noted urban development expxert and author David Morris presents an enlightening comparison between ecocrisis or sustainability as a global future. He addresses some of the most critical issues facing this country and the world today--deterioration of the planetary atmosphere and the greenhouse effect, the debt of the Third World, energy, garbage/recycling, plant-based fuels and plastics, and the underlying economics of each of these problems. Morris is exceptional because he goes beyond the problems and discusses solutions leading to local self-reliance and a sustainable future.
